As German avant/post-rock trio THE ANTIKAROSHI prepares for the release of their fifth LP, Extract.Transform.Debase, to see release through their friends at Exile On Mainstream this Friday, the entire album is now streaming early exclusively at New Noise Magazine.
On Extract.Transform.Debase, THE ANTIKAROSHI reliably delivers eight resilient songs fans of Fugazi, Unwound, Drive Like Jehu, Quicksand, Lungfish, and Exile On Mainstream labelmates DÃ¿se, We Insist!, Bulbul, and Beehoover will enjoy.
Extract.Transform.Debase was recorded, mixed, and mastered in the Autumn of 2020 at Blockhausstudio and ChaosAudioProd Basement by Nikolaus Schwab. Joining Christoph Hennig (vocals, guitar, electronics), Dirk Hoffman (vocals, bass, electronics), and Andre Pautz (drums), the record features guest piano and vocals from Marco Henschke and cello from Mette Wätzel on “Set Your Reminder” and vocals from Tonia Reeh on “Spitting Image.” The captivating cover artwork was created by Matt Irwin (A Whisper In The Noise, Wive).
